"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

D'You Know What?#2

Does anyone remember in the 70's when there was a movement for Yorkshire to declare UDI from the rest of Great Britain? It's still ongoing but this time it has the Conservative Party in its sights.

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland aren't the only ones who've suffered grievance over the past thirty-odd years and the small matter of England remains but I think all of us are too late - yes, even you, my SNP friends.

I think it's fair to say that England has more cause to grieve than other parts of the Union because of the unremitting immigration from third world countries since 1997 - fewer go to Scotland, Wales or N. Ireland than to England. The character of the country has changed - England is an example of social engineering at its best. Corruption of the voting system isn't unknown; 'honour' crimes (oh, be fair, it's the BBC - you can't possibly expect them to mention some words) are rife; no-go areas and segregation have sprung up but you'll never find it reported in depth or addressed in any meaningful way.

So, all we have now, on our doorstep, flies in the face of Labour's commitment to equality for all. I wish I knew more swear words because ******* b*stard lying government whores and media ***** just doesn't quite capture how I feel.

In the meantime, if you're English, just sit back and enjoy the laughs while you can. You'll stop smiling before our Scottish, Welsh and N.Irish cousins but it will come to them eventually.

Here's an old joke for you:
From one inhabitant of 'Great Schmuck' to another, our money pays for this: Don't go back to sleep.

  1. I'm a wee bit confused with the map GV. Is my tea too strong?

  2. It's probably something in the water SR :) Ignore the dotted line - I don't think Scotland is going to be carved into three regions.
